METAFOR

Common Metadata for Climate Modelling Digital Repositories

metafor_logo.png Tipo de proyecto: Proyecto europeo
Fuente Financiadora: European Union
Programa: 7º Programa Marco
Código: 211753
Periodo: Marzo 2008 - Febrero 2011
Estado: Terminado
Web: metafor.eu

The main objective of METAFOR is to develop a Common Information Model (CIM) to describe climate data and the models that produce it in a standard way, and to ensure the wide adoption of the CIM. METAFOR will address the fragmentation and gaps in availability of metadata (data describing data) as well as duplication of information collection and problems of identifying, accessing or using climate data that are currently found in existing repositories.

METAFOR will optimize the way climate data infrastructures are used to store knowledge, thereby adding value to primary research data and information, and providing an essential asset for the numerous stakeholders actively engaged in climate change issues (policy, research, impacts, mitigation, private sector).
